San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 5

A new brunch spot lands at Liberty Station, Star Trek-themed beer, culinary intel from Specialty Produce, and more

By Archana Ram

In this week’s installment of the most buzzy dining and drinking news, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson dish on the opening of Ponsaty’s in Rancho Santa Fe, led by one of two Master Chefs of France in San Diego. Plus, a local ramen restaurant adds a location across the border in Tijuana and a mega-popular brunch spot lands in Liberty Station.

In this episode, we’re also welcoming Maribel Hernandez of Specialty Produce, the local family-owned produce purveyor that operates a warehouse market and provides produce for top San Diego eateries, including Cucina Urbana, Juniper & Ivy, and more. Hernandez shares the scoop on what it’s like to work behind the scenes with the city’s top chefs.

Plus, Star Trek beer—it’s a thing.
